    by Anne Tschida

    While the Museum of Art and Design at MDC College in the Freedom Tower continues to undergo renovations, its wonderful cross-disciplinary series “Living Together” continues with Carrie Mae Weems for one evening on Feb. 3, at the MDC Wolfson campus (www.mdcmoad.org). The highly acclaimed multi-media artist will present “Past Tense,” which looks at modern America –with all its racial and gender warts -- through the microscope of one of the most famous of classical theatrical productions, Sophocles’ “Antigone.” In light of the devastating hurricanes and certain remarks about Haitians, the Lowe Museum’s (www.lowe.miami.edu) February exhibit “Antillean Visions: Maps and the Making of the Caribbean” seem particularly timely. The 200 maps have been chosen from not just the collections at the University of Miami, but also from HistoryMiami and the Wolfsonian-FIU, and explicate the impact of colonial economies, artistic interventions and histories of the Caribbean from the 16th century to today. In keeping with contemporary issues and also delving into presentations outside of traditional visual arts norms, ArtCenter/South Florida (www.artcentersf.org) exhibits “Intertidal,” from a collective of artists and architects called A.S.T. They examine what Miami’s future increasingly underwater will look like – taking over the entire gallery into an “Intertidal” zone, above water at low tide….and underwater at high tide. And two Toms will be featured at both Bridge Red Studios and Under the Bridge in North Miami. In the upper space are some incredible but often under-appreciated works from the 1960s from Tom Schmitt. His superbly colored and composed geometric abstract paintings rival that of his more famous contemporaries such as Frank Stella, no joke. Downstairs, Tom Scicluna, one of Miami’s most interesting conceptual sculptors, will take over both the indoor and outdoor space, for an exhibit entitled “Free.”
